Art Making as Mindfulness Workshop
December 15 @ 10:00 am - December 16 @ 5:00 pm$395.00
Participants will gain insights into the nature of mindfulness as they are guided in expressive arts processes that awaken them to the present moment, and open them to new insights that arise. Participants will experience the therapeutic value of art making as mindfulness first hand through engaging in expressive arts modalities and intermodal processes that draw on breath meditations, visual arts, writing, movement, and sharing.
Practical knowledge about how to plan sessions for groups, work from a person-centered approach with people’s art, and art making ideas to integrate into their personal and professional lives will be interwoven throughout this experience. This course will assist people in understanding the possibilities in combining art and mindfulness, and help them become responsible, trustworthy guides of this work.
